Guest star spotlight
Pricsa Bakare as Rosey Hooper
Taking on the role of JP Hooper’s wife in Death in Paradise is Prisca Bakare, the real-life spouse of JP actor Tobi Bakare.
Prisca, who has three young children with Tobi in real life, only has one other acting credit to her name, a 2016 appearance in a TV adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Laura Aikman as Cherry Jackson
It’s best that viewers don’t get too attached to Laura Aikman’s character, Cherry Jackson, as she’s this episode’s unfortunate murder victim.
Fans will likely know 35-year-old Laura best from her stints on The Job Lot, Waterloo Road, Casualty and BBC comedy Bluestone 42 although she has over 75 acting credits in total.
Jason Manford as Craig Mackenzie
Jason Manford is a face many will recognise. He takes on the role of Craig Mackenzie in Death in Paradise, a guest at Gavin and Cherry’s house.
As well as a successful career in comedy and panel shows, the Salford-born Manford has also appeared as an actor in a number of TV series including Ordinary Lies, Benidorm, Shameless and most recently the BBC comedy, Scarborough.
Death in Paradise continues on BBC One and iPlayer each Thursday after series 10 began on January 7th, 2021.
